RHP Jerome Williams emerged this spring as a possible sandwich to second-round pick. He threw an ordinary 87-89 mph early in the season, but when he bumped up his velocity to 92, scouts on the mainland found a reason to travel to Hawaii. Williams was called a cross between Bob Gibson and Dwight Gooden by one scout because of his fluid arm and delivery, but his mechanics are not refined. It is rare for Hawaiians to leave the islands for the pros directly out of high school, but Williams is signable and looks like he'll join Sid Fernandez and Onan Masaoka as ones who did.
